"I'll be returning to the incredibly fearless city of Manchester to spend time with my fans and to have a benefit concert in honour of and to raise money for the victims and their families", she said.

Meanwhile, the father and brother of the bomber, Salman Abedi, have also been detained in Libya.

A German magazine reports that the Manchester concert bomber passed through Duesseldorf airport four days before the attack.

The militia, which is aligned with the Libyan government, said that the younger Abedi was allegedly planning a terror attack in Libya when arrested.

She did not announce a date for the concert.

If confirmed, the halt to the sharing investigative details with Britain's most important defense and security ally would underscore the level of anger in Britain at leaks to the USA media of details about the police investigation.

The Wigan suspect was carrying a package that the police were investigating, police said, without giving further details.

The attack on Manchester Arena was staged by 22-year-old Salman Abedi, a Manchester resident of Libyan descent. The Times, without specifying the source, said British authorities provided access to photos of materials found at the scene. Britain's interior minister said earlier that he had recently returned from Libya and had likely not acted alone.

Collomb said Abedi's links with the Islamic State group were "proven".

Abedi was known to security services because of his radical views.

In a separate interview with BBC Radio 4, Rudd said it appears likely that Abedi was not acting alone.

"We have been following him for more than one month and a half", Bin Salem said.

At least twelve of the 22 victims who died in Monday's attack have now been identified.

The attack was the deadliest in Britain since 2005, when 56 people were killed in an attack on the London transport system.

On Thursday at 11 a.m., many across Britain fell silent and bowed their heads for a minute in tribute to the victims of Monday night's bombing.

Prime Minister Theresa May raised Britain's terrorism threat level to the highest level of "critical" late Tuesday, meaning a further attack is likely or "imminent".
